Prologue VR-Creating 360 Films Using Stop Motion
Thursday, March 17
3:30PM - 4:30PM
Hilton Austin Downtown
500 E 4th St
The Land of Hope and Glory is a VR film that revolves around a graduating class of ‘Tempters’—devils trained to harvest their victims’ souls—as they feast and listen to a wise alumnus’s commencement speech. This project will mark the first time Prologue VR has combined 3D printing with stop-motion for a 360-VR film. In contrast to our usual workflow of assembling a large team of artists for live-action and CG projects and rather than constructing the film’s set in 3D Maya, the film will be shot practically inside the physical set.
This session is part of the new VR/AR Track at SXSW 2016, which runs Wed, March 16 through Friday, March 18. This session is part of Convergence Programming at SXSW 2016 and open to all badgeholders.
